NAME POS. TEAM INJURY DATE INJURED EXP. RETURN DATE ANALYSIS
Steven Adams C NO Toe 28-Apr DAY TO DAY Adams will likely have to miss a couple of more games with a sprained toe and Willy Hernangomez and Jaxson Hayes will split minutes at Center. Hayes will provide more defense and Hernangomez will provide the offense.
Chuma Okeke PF ORL Ankle 28-Apr DAY TO DAY Okeke is dealing with a sprained ankle and if he needs to miss more time, Mo Bamba and Dwayne Bacon will see more minutes and shots.
Mike Conley PG UT Hamstring 26-Apr DAY TO DAY Conley has sat out with a tight hamstring for the last few games and while he rests up, Jordan Clarkson and Joe Ingles will help bring up the ball. Royce O'Neale could see time with the rock as well.
Derrick White G SA Ankle 26-Apr OUT FOR THE SEASON The Spurs coaching staff are not confident that we'll see White suit up again for the rest of the regular-season and while he's sitting on the bench, Lonnie Walker will see more time with the ball and shots. Keldon Johnson and Rudy Gay will see an uptick in Field Goal Attempts.
Kevin Huerter SG/SF ATL Shoulder 26-Apr DAY TO DAY Huerter is the latest Hawk to get hurt (pun intended) and being that he's dealing with a sprained shoulder, it wouldn't be shocking to see him continue to miss action. The reserve guards Lou Williams and Brandon Goodwin will see a lot more playing time.
Bogdan Bogdanovic SG/F ATL Hamstring 26-Apr DAY TO DAY Bogdanovic has been dealing with a sore hamstring and if he needs to continue to miss action, Lou Williams and Brandon Goodwin will see more time with the ball and shots while De'Andre Hunter and Cam Reddish and Kevin Huerter all injured.
Harrison Barnes F SAC Adductor 26-Apr DAY TO DAY Barnes has now missed a few games and being that he plays a lot of minutes, there are a lot of minutes that are more available. Marvin Bagley III and Mo Harkless will get a major minutes boost if he continues to sit.
Kemba Walker PG BOS Oblique 25-Apr DAY TO DAY Walker is dealing with an injury around the abdoman and groin area and he's missed his last few games. While he's out Marcus Smart and Payton Pritchard will bring up the ball.
Larry Nance Jr. PF/C CLE Thumb 25-Apr No Timetable Chances are slim that we see Nance back in the lineup with just a couple of weeks to go. The Cavs aren't going to the postseason and while Nance is out Kevin Love and Cedi Osman will see more shots.
Matthew Dellavedova G CLE Neck 25-Apr No Timetable Dellavedova's season is likely over as his neck is in major pain. Darius Garland, Collin Sexton and Damyean Dotson will help run the point the rest of the way.
Bruce Brown SG BKN Knee 25-Apr DAY TO DAY Brown has missed his last few games with an injured knee and while he recovers, Landry Shamet and Joe Harris will see more shots and time with the ball until James Harden returns.
Gary Trent Jr. SG/SF TOR Leg 24-Apr DAY TO DAY Trent has missed his last few games with a bruised leg and if he continues to sit, Rodney Hood and De'Andre Bembry will see more minutes. These are all reserve minutes as long as Kyle Lowry and Fred VanVleet are healthy.
John Wall PG HOU Hamstring 23-Apr OUT FOR THE SEASON Wall is done for the season and Kevin Porter Jr. and Jae'Sean Tate will help bring up the ball for the rest of the season. Even Christian Wood will get more time with the ball.
De'Aaron Fox PG SAC COVID 23-Apr Early May Fox is in the protocol and while he sits Tyrese Haliburton will handle most of the facilitating in the backcourt and Delon Wright will also help bring up the ball while shifting to other positions.
Will Barton SG/SF DEN Hamstring 23-Apr DAY TO DAY Barton has a strained hamstring and he joins Monte Morris and Jamal Murray on the shelf and while he's out, expect Aaron Gordon and especially Michael Porter Jr. to see more shots. P.J. Dozier will see more minutes.
Tyler Herro G/SF MIA Foot 23-Apr DAY TO DAY Herro continues to be hampered by this foot injury and while he's out, Kendrick Nunn will see more minutes and shots and Duncan Robinson will benefit as well.
             
Damion Lee SG/SF GSW COVID 21-Apr Early May Lee is in the COVID protocol and while he's out Kent Bazemore and Jordan Poole should pick up a few reserve minutes. Kelly Oubre Jr. will see more shots from the field.
Deni Avdija SG/SF WSH Ankle 21-Apr OUT FOR THE SEASON Avdija's rookie season is over after fracturing his Ankle. Davis Bertans will pick up shots in the offense and even some of the reserves such as Isaac Bonga and Garrison Matthews will see more minutes.
Chris Boucher PF/C TOR Knee 21-Apr No Timetable We don't know when we'll see Boucher take the floor again this season and while he's out Khem Birch and Aron Baynes will see more run in the Raptors rotation if he needs to miss time. Birch way more than Baynes.
Taurean Prince F CLE Ankle 21-Apr OUT FOR THE SEASON Prince will miss the rest of the season. He's having Ankle surgery and that will mean more minutes for Larry Nance Jr., Kevin Love and even reserve minutes for Cedi Osman.
Jae Crowder F PHX Ankle 21-Apr DAY TO DAY Crowder continues to miss action with an injured Ankle and Cam Johnson will see more minutes if Crowder continues to sit and as long as he's not too banged up, Dario Saric will see more action.

Goga Bitadze C IND Ankle 19-Apr DAY TO DAY There is a chance Bitadze can return to action on Saturday, but if he needs more time off, it will be up to JaKarr Sampson and Oshae Brissett to clog up the middle.
Myles Turner PF/C IND Toe 18-Apr No Timetable Turner is suffering from a major Toe injury and we don't know when we'll see him take the court again and Goga Bitadze and JaKarr Sampson will be playing more on the low block.
Jeremy Lamb SG/SF IND Knee 18-Apr DAY TO DAY Lamb continues to get ruled out of games and it hasn't been the easiest transition for him since returning from being hurt last year. Justin Holiday and Edmond Sumner will see more action if he continues to sit.
Domantas Sabonis PF/C IND Back 18-Apr DAY TO DAY Sabonis has missed a few games and while he's out it will be up to Doug McDermott, Goga Bitadze and Jakarr Sampson to help defend the post. At this point we have to consider Sabonis DTD.

Zach LaVine SG/SF CHI COVID 15-Apr End Of April This is brutal for fantasy basketball playoff teams, especially those in weekly leagues. While LaVine is out, most viable Bulls options should see a boost in shots. Nikola Vucevic becomes the team's top option. We could start to see more Garrett Temple and Denzel Valentine until LaVine returns.
Michael Carter-Williams G ORL Ankle 14-Apr DAY TO DAY MCW continues to miss games with an Ankle injury and that just means more run for Cole Anthony and R.J. Hampton.
Jamal Murray G DEN Torn ACL 12-Apr OUT FOR THE SEASON Yes, the injury was as awful as it appeared and Murray's season is over. Now running point will be the combination of Monte Morris and Facundo Campazzo for the rest of the season. Will Barton will also help bring up the ball and Aaron Gordon should get more shots.
D.J. Augustin PG HOU Foot/Ankle 12-Apr Early May Augustin is practicing but is still limited and we may only see him for the final week of the regular season. Kevin Porter Jr. will continue to see heavy minutes running the point while he's out.

Devonte Graham and Terry Rozier will see more time with the rock.

Otto Porter Jr. F ORL Foot 1-Apr No Timetable Porter is no stranger to injury and the Magic are heading for the lottery and they will likely rest him for games when he returns to action. While he's out, Chuma Okeke (if healthy), Gray Harris and Dwayne Bacon will see more minutes and shots.
Mitchell Robinson C NY Foot 27-Mar No Timetable Robinson continues to prove that he can't shake the injuries and he broke his Foot and we don't know when we'll see him again. Grab Nerlens Noel as he'll go back to playing the bulk of the minutes with Taj Gibson backing him up.
Al Horford PF/C OKC BENCHED 27-Mar OUT FOR THE SEASON The Thunder are benching Al Horford for the rest of the season as they head towards the lottery.

Thomas Bryant PF/C WSH Torn ACL 9-Jan OUT FOR THE SEASON This is a major blow to the Wizards frontcourt and once the reports came out about Bryant's ACL being torn, we must look to Daniel Gafford, Alex Len and Robin Lopez as they will fill the void.
